Subject: Wow great sound
I've dl about 300 sbd from this site and this is has excellent sound. WOW WOW, this is easily at least 4+ sound. It makes listening to the music that much better too. Jerry's voice is crisp, always a good thing.

Subject: Yankees Won World Series Four Games To Two
From the opening comments of Phil Lesh about the outcome that night's World Series game: What a night! What a fabulous night! I was there and you could tell by his swagger on stage when he first came out Jerry was pumped and ready to play. He brings that randy "Wolf" tone from note one.
What we got was near perfection for a show. Every song an alltimer! Tennessee had me SCREAMING -- I tell ya. WOO-WHEE! Even FOTD was great with Jerry splashing out big outlays of fresh chords. Opens your spiritual nostrils so you can catch the holy fragrance. D'You dig? Miracle cuts you straight to the marrow! Jerry breathing his all, effortlessly, into it -- fanning the flames! Holy Moly! but they cut it short to tune up.
Out comes one splendidly precise reading of Stagger Lee. Sounds rehearsed...whattya know? They rehearsed! This song is utter perfection. Jerry's glissando chords, oh geez, just a gnat's breath late! Yes, I remember this night! Holy Night.
This show is one show in Egypt and one show in mirth. 1978 had a bad rap - not this night. Jack Straw just flat-out-raging rocks! Bobby is going crazy on stage with his furious fanning and spots Jerry over there about to bloom and just gets out of the way and lets Jerry cut loose as much as Jerry wants, and the result is positively mind-altering.
There are a few lyric flubs here and there in Scarlet>Fire but it didn't matter because we were all screaming/singing them aloud, all along. And doing that caused Jerry to wink at us and then just disintegrate us with his ray gun.
All of the other ones recognized it and just set back, got out of the way and let the man play, and play he did! He lets every moment loose -- gives it everything he's got. For what more can you ask, the Divine?
The slightly truncated end of the second verse transition tarnishes an almost flawless buildup on Estimated, but regardless, Jerry solos swiftly true it all. He's telling us he's sorry. He is publicly apologizing for himself. He's for giving and he's asking for giveness; opening our Eyes of understanding. He strains after every note netting butterfly. Holy, beautiful, perfect, Eyes. Everyone just gets out of the way and lets Jerry do his thing. They know it right away and know internally that this is Jerry's return from Egypt with a braid of garlic and leeks 'round his neck.
Watch out for the patch during Eyes. It's abrupt!
But, oh, heavenly newfound Eyes.
Then comes a long drums followed by space where in the first sector of it you can hear voices from backstage, or something, cross-frequencied in the mix - very weird. And the space becomes a spiral staircase winding down into the bowels of forgetta bout it.
World To Give....Jerry lays it out on the line all in one piece, says everything he's ever got to say and says it and says it and then just shuts up!
The effect is overwhelming. Now I'm up and dancing on a slow ballad!
After that the whole band goes completely nuts on Around and US Blues. Both are spectacular renditions. "Summertime done come and gone, my oh my" And the...
Yankees win! Yankees win!
